Hi everyone! Kyla here!
As I competed over the last few years, I accumulated quite a bit of scholarship money. It has helped me pay for my first two years of community college, and for this I am thankful. Over the last month, I have been visiting universities so that I can transfer in the fall. As I filled out applications and went in for interviews, I started to realize just how much scholarship money I have accumulated over the last three years! I am proud to say that I will be able to attend a four-year university with little to no tuition next year when I transfer.
I have also gained more than scholarships while competing in the Miss California Organization. When I arrived at my college visits, the receptionist in the admissions office informed my parents and me that I was scheduled to have an interview. So, I pretty much walked into a room right then and had a 10-15 minute interview. No nerves crept up, nor was I tongue tied for even a minute. I know this is because of the confidence that I have gained throughout my years competing in this organization. Not only was I able to breeze through the interview, I was able to walk around the campus and talk to pretty much everyone with confidence, something I wouldn’t have dreamed of being able to do even two years ago.
Thank you for all of your love and support!
